The 73rd Annual Golden Globes Round Up 2016 / I'm Black & A Film Blogger - White Oscar Boycott Dilemma!

 Quick RECAP of the Hollywood Foreign Press

 73rd Golden Globe Awards

 By Tinsel & Tine Editor, Le Anne Lindsay

So another Golden Globes has come and gone. This would be my 7th Annual Golden Globe Round Up Post beginning in 2010, except, I watched, but didn't write one for 2013.
Click for posts:  67th  68th  69th  70th  71th  72nd.  

Host Ricky Gervais' disdain for all and sundry hit a few gasps, but on the whole, was pretty tame. I have to admit last night, I was unaware of the whole Sean Penn and El Chapo surreal-ality, so that joke went over my head til I watch the Today Show in the morning.

Someone tweeted that best buds JLaw and AShu should host next year.  I say book em now!


In keeping with the whole film and food thing, I always create a little Red Carpet Picnic to indulge in while watching and tweeting.  One of these years, I'd love to get a restaurant sponsor, but I've been too lazy to really pursue it; after all, it's enough work to secure a T&T giveaway for my subscribers each month.

LeVonne was away doing a show in VA this year, but Diane came over as per custom, and we indulged in Cucumber slices with Port Wine Cheese Spread and Bacon Ranch Spread, French Toast Sticks w real Maple Syrup, Land O'Lakes Mint Hot Chocolate (same brand they use at the Ritz movie theaters), Giant's Fried Chicken, Bob Evans easy heat up Mashed Potatoes, Skinny Girl Microwave Popcorn, G.H. Mumm Brut Champagne, Ginger Beer and for dessert buy one get one free Entenmann's Cheese Danish and Golden Cake with Chocolate Icing

Worst Acceptance Speech of the Night

What the hell was wrong with Denzel! Embarrassing! I was so looking forward to him being honored. Glad he brought he's family up but he was bumbling #GoldenGlobes

Best Acceptance Speech of the Night

Jonah Hill as The Revenant Bear was a hoot.  But seriously Leonardo DiCaprio presented a very polished, well pointed speech. Of course he's had a number of years to practice it!

Honorable Mentions

I still have to see "Steve Jobs" before the Oscars, but I did see "Ex Machina" and I'm quite certain Alicia Vikander...

Food n Film: BURNT

Food n Film: BURNT
Bradley Cooper has more than charisma, he has an over abundance of Chi, which radiates out from him; so for me, this role as temperamental and damaged chef Adam Jones, who also inspires great love and admiration from those around him, works on the level of characterization. In fact, I think he's among a very short list of actors who would be able to pull off being so self-involved and yet likable. Doesn't hurt that he really speaks French too! READ POST

Food n Film: CHEF

Food n Film: CHEF
Much of the movie centers around the father/son relationship, and how much they learn from each other. But the real star of the film is all the food preparation, every other scene made me groan with want of everything up on that screen! Particularly the perfectly roasted and rubbed brisket, the crispy fat of the pork belly, sizzling bacon and the much ballyhooed Chocolate Lava Cake. READ POST


The key to deciphering both the city it beautifully depicts and the man who eats it best - City of Gold

By Tinsel & Tine Contributor Denine Gorniak (The Bicycle-Chef)

What Jonathan Gold, Los Angeles Times food critic/writer, has done for food writing journalism and for the restaurants that he loves, the movie, City of Gold has done for Jonathan Gold and Los Angeles and its surrounding environs – it has planted taco covered kisses on them... READ POST

Food n Film: CHOCOLAT

Food n Film: CHOCOLAT
If you’re a foodie movie lover who saw Lasse Hallström’s The Hundred Foot Journey (see T&T post), this summer you may be wondering what delicious visual journey might be awaiting you in the theater next. Well, how about a look back at his film Chocolat (2000), which stars French actress Juliette Binoche, Judi Dench and Johnny Depp. Hallström’s has a special talent for turning cooking into a dramatic movie journey...READ MORE


...young Hassan, a soulful-eyed boy with lush, thick eye lashes, places his face into the sea urchin basket, and breathes in the exotic briny scent. He sticks his fingers into the aquatic ooze, takes it to his mouth and is transfixed by the taste. The vendor, oblivious to the thrusting arms of frenzied women, notices the boy and realizes he is the only one worthy of this oceanic prize; he is the one who can “truly taste.” ... READ MORE

Food n Film: JULIE & JULIA

Food n Film: JULIE & JULIA
Personally, I like the unevenness of it, because I fell in love with the post World War II, Parisian sights, sounds, food and romance between Julia and Paul. I always felt a bit jarred back into reality when the scenes returned to Julie's meltdowns and cramped kitchen.READ POST

Food n Film: EAT PRAY LOVE

Food n Film: EAT PRAY LOVE
Six months into my 38th year of this life, I had my first panic attack. I didn't know that's what it was until months later. Symptom after symptom starting piling up on me until there were days I could no longer move my arms or neck. The doctors told me I was suffering from an auto-immune condition that they felt was most likely Lupus. And so began my much deeper journey and exploration into the world of spirit, alternative medicine, yoga, meditation and Eat, Pray, Love. READ POST


With a film like this, food plays a main character in the story and I was lucky enough to get an interview with the film's Food Stylist, Janine Kalesis.READ POST

Food n Film: WAITRESS

Food n Film: WAITRESS
In this 2007 film, Keri Russell stars as Jenna - a desolate diner waitress seeking solace in the art of pie-making. Trapped in an unhappy marriage, she’s eager to escape her husband and her small-town hell and sets about to make a run for it by entering an out of town pie baking contest. READ POST


Those of us in attendance were not only given the opportunity to see Babette's Feast, the Oscar winning, Danish film, considered one of the all-time great "food films"; we also got to taste Babette's menu! READ POST

About This Blog

is about discovering what I find pleasing in screening & eating - in case you missed it, the name is a play on Tinseltown using the Tines of a Fork.

Feel free to send me info on a film or new restaurant you'd like me to highlight.

Will there ever be a cap on movie prices?

Will we one day pay $20 a pop?

Why don't we pay on a scale?

A crap movie like everything Adam Sandler has ever done should cost about $4.50.
Big action movies like"Lord of the Rings", "Iron Man," "Transformers" are worth $10.
Woody Allen movie or something like "Silver Linings Playbook" $6-$7.
A chick flick or light comedy $5.75 and most Indie Films $5.25.

You could even do it by seasons - all summer block busters from May to August - $10
Sept - November 15th $3.50 - $4
Back to $10 for Thanksgiving and Christmas etc...

Or you can do it by A Actors ($9 - $10), B Actors ($6 - $7) TV actors on the big screen ($3.50 - $4)

Surely I'm not the first person to realize this makes sense. Has it been voted on in the Motion Picture Industry and then vetoed? If so, why?
